It becomes a ritual practice in film industry, when a heroine manages to strike the biggest score with her magnanimous performance; every leading hero wants to have them as their pair. But what happens during most of the times is that heroines are limited only for screen presence without substantial roles. It is seemingly happening with Nithya Menen who has been offering best performances from the beginning of her career that includes Veppam, 22 Female Kottayam remake and JK Ennum Nanbanin Vaazhkai.
But then her fame shot to a much bigger spell through Manirathnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani, where role as an urban girl Tara stole the show. Soon after this release, she was offered to team up with big heroes like Suriya in 24 and Vikram’s recent release Iru Mugan. While her role in 24 was not more than 15 minutes, her screen presence in Iru Mugan too didn’t have much to offer her. Is it a wakeup call for Nithya Menen that she must continue choosing the ones that offer bigger roles than merely being a namesake part of project?
